She also revealed her new workout regime with followers this week, explaining that she's had to adapt it because her baby bump has become so big in recent weeks.

"Loads of you have asked me about my training," she began. "What we've been focusing on mainly is my posterior, the back of my body.

"Where I've got quite a big belly, it's kind of pulling me forward. My posture's not really how it should be."

#tb to one of the best holidays in Dom Rep! Rocking my bikini, in my best shape and at my healthiest. Im posting this because all I’ve been asked since people know I’m pregnant is “are you worried about putting on weight?” Well, in a word, NO. I don’t see pregnancy as just someone gaining weight. I see it as my body shape & size changing because Im lucky enough to be going through this incredible miracle which nature intended. A miracle sadly denied to many woman, so the last thing I’m going to be worrying about is that one of the side effects of my pregnancy is the fact I WILL GAIN WEIGHT. I’m extremely lucky to be in this situation. My cellulite will increase due to the rapid increase in oestrogen in my body. I’ll at times look bloated or have some spots and carry water retention due to my hormones changing, BUT all of the above are signs that my body is working correctly to house my baby. Yes I’m still training & yes I’m very mindful of my food consumption and nutrition (still allowing the odd pizza, chippy or cheesecake of course!) I can’t train to the extent I usually do right now because it’s not safe for my baby and that’s my only priority right now. I know what to do post baby to get myself and my body back to where they were beforehand so I’m not worried one bit. I’m Embracing the wonderful journey I’m on, strangely even the sickness. I’m also lucky in that Gorks is THE most supportive person I could have with me. Constantly making me feel sexy and beautiful in whatever body I’m in. He’s actually loving the fact my boobs have doubled in size... Cant think why 🤔😂 If you too are going through the wonderful changes in your body during pregnancy I salute you! It’s incredible! I now have a new found respect for my body and what it’s capable of.🤰
